August was a lighter reading month for me, and there really wasn’t all that much of a reason behind that. I just didn’t read a lot, and instead did other things. I will say that I ended up reading more physical copies that I usually do, which was neat. I also read a lot of different things at once, and didn’t finish them all. However, I did end up reading 16 books. You’ll find everything I read below the cut.

The June OwlCrate was a pretty cool box. It had an “All The World’s a Stage” theme, which I loved and was super excited about. I love that quote from Shakespeare, and it was really nice to see what items were included. My apologies for the delay on posting this!
**Disclaimer: I received a free advanced reader’s copy of Fable by Adrienne Young through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you to NetGalley and the publishers for this opportunity!
Fable by Adrienne Young is the first of two books in the Namesake duology. It is a young adult fantasy novel set in a seafaring world, and tells the story of a teenage girl named Fable who is just trying to survive and get by. Fable is set to be published on September 1st, 2020. I gave it 4 stars on Goodreads.
Hello friends! Inspiration has struck Kari and I again, so we are back once more with another edition of The Loyal Book-A-Thon! This time we took inspiration from everyone’s favourite time of year: back to school! (I will admit to a little bit of sarcasm there, especially in light of the current times but I digress!) Our next readathon will occur during the month of September and we really hope you’ll come along with us on this journey! 🙂

I’ve heard this book be compared to Moulin Rouge and Caraval mixed together. While I haven’t read Caraval yet (I know, I know it’s on my TBR!), you had me at that comparison! This definitely did not disappoint!
